Eckstein, Lugo, Everett or Crosby?

I like Eckstein the most.
I'm liking Tampa Bay this year though, but I don't know if Lugo can keep it up.

I like Eckstein out of that group. I know most were not high on Eckstein this year, but I think he will post very good numbers in that lineup. With Guerrero and Anderson hitting behind him he is a lock for 100-120 runs. Should get 20-25 SB and hit somewhere between .280-.300.

I actually had the exact dilemma and went with Eckstein over Lugo, mostly because of Vlad and GA behind him. .280+ with 100 runs easy and 25 SBs is what I'm hoping for.

I'm another fan of Eckstein, but only b/c I really liked his out of nowhere arrival a few years back. It's not a sure thing he'll be back in it this year (hopefully last year was a sophomore slump) but like it was mentioned he's in a better lineup. As long as he keeps his job at the top of the order he should arrive at those aforementioned numbers.

But if he still seems to be a drag after a month, Crosby may be your man. At least he has that sleeper hype before the season. Don't know too much about those other guys...

Ill throw in another vote for eckstein. With Vladdy, Garret, and Glaus hitting behind him, he should score a ton of runs. Hes also a solid SB threat.

Hmmm...I'll go against the grain and say Lugo. His numbers last year were great toward the end of the season.

I will really go out there & say Crosby will have the best fantasy numbers come September.
